A Cult Based On Misinformation

The Washington Post Capital Weather Gang is making more unsupportable claims about weather, and attributing it to climate. They say heatwaves are getting worse, that India is having record heat, and that last May was hottest on record in the US.  None of these claims are true.

Washington Post

India was hotter in June 1935, and just as hot in other years.

08 Jun 1935 – HEAT WAVE – Trove

12 Jun 1953, 1 – The Daily Oklahoman at Newspapers.com

27 May 1935 – TRAGIC HEAT WAVE

p4 – 15 Jun 1966 – The Canberra Times (ACT : 1926 – 1995) 

Last May was not a particularly hot month in the US.  It had a high average maximum temperature (third highest  after 1934 and 1936) due to a lack of cold fronts, but there was little hot weather.

The frequency of days over 90F wasn’t even in the top ten. May 1934, 1911 and 1962 were much hotter.

Same story with 95 degree days.

May 1934 was much hotter in the US, with unprecedented heat of 109 degrees in Iowa and 108 degrees in Minnesota.

The whole country was blistering hot.

According to the National Climate Assessment, heatwaves have dropped off sharply in the US over the past 90 years.

Climate alarmism is based largely on fake statistics, and always has been.

    My guess is that the “…hottest May on record…” claim probably originated with NOAA.

    My area of the country had a typically cold February that NOAA characterized with their 5×5 pixel map as “much warmer than normal.” They had to be using model data, not actual measured temperatures. So I suspect the same is true for claims about May.

    We have not yet reached 90F once in the Denver/Boulder area this year, which is unusual. I can’t say that I miss it being hot. I’m sure the weather will change, although there is no 90F day in the forecast for the next 10 days.

    The fact is that weather and climate do change and the “extremes” the Washington Post claims are not extreme at all.

      Imagine we would have now such things as the famine in ethiopia of the mid- 80ies,
      or the USSR crop failures of the 60iesor the dust bowl of the 30ies.

      They would terrorize us 24/7 with those “proves” of AGW
      and i am pretty sure many of these psychos are hoping for such a scenario to happen to go full berserk.

    The Post is talking about New Delhi reaching a new record, but all the articles you posted are from other cities (Calcutta, Bombay, etc) and none from New Delhi. Have you been able to find any articles talking specifically about New Delhi? Otherwise, you seem to be backing up the Post’s claims about India..

    I do appreciate the data showing that we haven’t seen a “hottest May on record”. They said the same thing about April

      Stuart, the cities listed in the dateline for the newspaper articles from India are not necessarily where the heat was, just the location of the reporter or wire service where the reports were sent to. Some specific areas of heat mentioned are Hyderabad, Deccan plateau and West Bengal. With a current metro area population of 26.5 million and a temperature recorded at the seventh busiest airport in Asia (Indira Gandhi Intl), I think there is now some serious UHI associated with New Delhi temps.

    This is about World Government. It has been in the 70s four straight days in Georgia the Deep South on clear sunny skies. Hell, we could be entering an ice age and the “Hidden Hand” would blame Global warming. This is how absurd it has gotten.
